Student Stories


“Because Knox is known for its sound teaching tradition and supportive community, I believed it was the best school to provide me with a strong theological foundation which would allow me to prepare for advanced degree studies.”

— Kiersty, Master of Theological Studies


“I was attracted to Knox College because of its rich history of academic theological study and training. I have found a faculty with genuine pastoral concerns for the academic, spiritual, and pastoral growth of the students.”

— Ian, Master of Divinity


“I am deeply indebted to the College for the way that I was embraced as a mature student, and for the many ways that supporters of the work of Knox College assisted me in my journey toward ministry. In 2016, I am particularly grateful for the legacy of the men and women who blazed the trail that resulted in the ordination of women in our church fifty years ago. It is on their shoulders that I now stand as a minister of Word and Sacraments in The Presbyterian Church in Canada.”

— Monica, Master of Divinity


“While I continued to work full-time and live with my family in Nova Scotia, the online stream of Knox’s M.Div. program made it possible for me to complete the equivalent of my first two years of studies. I’m not sure how I would have pursued God’s call to ministry in the absence of this online option. I am deeply thankful to Knox College for offering students these exceedingly rich resources to access theological education.”

— Corrie, Master of Divinity
